Muslims are leaving Myanmar in droves after being persecuted by Buddhists monks. The Human Lens reports here:
The ethno-religious violence in Burma between the Buddhist majority and other groups, such as the Rohinga Muslims, has existed for many decades if not centuries. Yet the world continues to watch in silence as Rohingyas are butcherred and sliced by the radical militant Buddist monks. Over the last few weeks, there have been an increase in ethnic cleansing in the Rakhine state on the country’s west coast.
Thousands of desperate and terror struck Rohingya people are stuck in the sea waters because hardly any Asian country is willing to receive them. The plight of Rohingya boat migrants is the most bizarre example of a growing migration crisis confronting Asia: An estimated 6,000 to 20,000 migrants are right now at sea, fleeing ethnic persecution in Myanmar and abject poverty in Bangladesh, while the countries are pointing fingers at one another and declining to take humanitarian responsibilities towards human lives that are at stake.
